1965 Ri­ley 1.5

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

The Mi­nor for posh peo­ple or those af­flflflicted with sub­ur­ban snob­bery – the Ri­ley 1.5 was an early compact sport­ing sa­loon, mar­ry­ing the Mor­ris’ un­der­pin­nings with the larger, but heav­ier 1.5-litre en­gine. Ev­ery­thing was spot-on con­di­tion-wise, the two-tone light brown and cream bodywork and red in­te­rior in lovely or­der. Even the head­lin­ing, so of­ten ends up torn or dirty be­yond sal­va­tion, was fifine. The mar­ket is wak­ing up to th­ese great lit­tle cars, which was re­flflected in the price.
